Stress levels high

WOW what a crazy month, I am exhausted at best. I have been to Tampa 3 times in the last month & a half, I have two weekends to preach to “big Church” and my father is not doing well. He is not expected to make it through the night but no one knows for sure. It is Wednesday now and I have small group tomorrow night that I probably will not make, I haven’t been home In two days and to top it all off I have a new manager in Tampa, a major build up day at work, one holiday and another trip to Tampa before the 4th! When this is all over, I am going to bed for a week!
My prayers for my Dad are this: GIVE HIM BACK healthy or take him home now! I hate seeing him like this and it is tearing my mother to pieces.
My prayer for work is this: to have every account filled to max, no employees out of work and no store complaints over the 4th.
My prayer for my message to “big church” is: to be spirit lead, creative and engaging.
My prayer for my mother is: for her to be able to rest, she has been working hard to take care of Bobby and she is tired. She is about to lose her best friend, her helper and her husband. She needs comfort and rest really bad. This has been a long struggle for all of us but none worse than her.

So that is the big stuff that has been happening so if I disappear for a few days, you will know that I am sleeping!

Val,
Thank you for sharing this with our friends down there. Claude has been so busy, Jason and family is in Minnesota, and I have been trying to pick up the slack on the church end so I've forgotten to send any updates.
Thanks for being there to pray!
We love you!
Sheila
